Latina lovelies Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek are so alike they often reply to questions with the same answers simultaneously.

The sexy duo swiftly became best friends when they co-starred as a pair of bank robbers in forthcoming movie BANDIDAS.

And Cruz and Hayek have such a complete understanding of one another they even know what the other is going to say.

Cruz says, "I really love her, we even think alike - if somebody asks something, we answer with the same words - it's ridiculous.

"Since the day we met we've had a very strong connection, and I really respect her as an actress."

And Hayek is equally complimentary about Cruz: "She's quite a character. Things that in other people would be neurotic, on her they are very graceful."
